What blue red lipstick and the 10 best ones in 2019

The blue-red lipstick became a trend of high fashion in 2018 and will continue until 2019. And that is not to be missed, its tone generates an enviable color and enhances our lips in a unique way. We’ve seen celebrities, artists, musicians, and actresses wearing it.

And if you look at the catwalks at this time in several fashion shows (London, New York, Paris, and Milan) all top models wore blue-red lipsticks.

We know that Rihanna prefers a red-blue lip and almost never sees it without her lipstick. Beyonce, Nicole Kidman, Gwen Stefani, and Uma Thurman also love this tone on their lips.

Do you want to look like them? Then stay and I'll explain how.

What does blue red lipstick means

Blue red lipstick means sex appeal, assurance, and confidence.  A woman who can wear a blue-red lipstick is a feminist, an icon and a woman of style and strength.

The red lipsticks that are super fashionable today are those that come with a tinge of blue.  The blue adds a little extra sex appeal because it makes a red lip even bolder, even redder and even sexier.  It also removes any streaks or patchiness, as long as the blue-red lipstick you are wearing is a good one.

A blue-red lipstick also shows that you, the woman, mean business. Nobody is going to mess with you and your blue-red lips.  Especially when they are soft, creamy, glossy and well moisturized.  And never ever patchy!

The different shades of blue red lipsticks

Red lipsticks come in matte, satin and shiny, and blue-red lipsticks are exactly the same. There are various shades of color and texture and you have to find the tone and texture that works for your skin type.  You also have to find the lipstick that you are most comfortable wearing, whether with a matt, a shine or a bit of glitz.

The good news is that there’s a lot of choices out in the market when it comes to this particular color.  We would suggest that you go to your favorite local make-up store or drug store and spend a little time with the testers.  Take a friend so she can give you her opinion and tell you what colors really look good on you.

Testing lipsticks are fun; you get to test out all the different ranges, and you find the one that is the perfect shade for you.  You can also learn the difference between the shades and textures, and see if you prefer a full matte, a satin, or a shine.  

Popular types of lipsticks

Before you buy your lipstick, it’s good to know what the different kinds of lipsticks are.  Not the brand, but the actual make-up of the lipstick. 

Here is a quick lipstick guide for you:

  • Matte Lipstick: leaves your lips with a velvety feel.
  • Satin Lipstick: glides seamlessly over the lips.
  • Sheer Lipstick: super moisturizing with a high gloss.
  • Moisturizing Lipstick: velvet satin texture that glides on easily.
  • Glossy Lipstick: shines and reflects the light.
  • Cream Lipstick: colors your lips, beautifully. 
  • Frosted Lipstick: adds shimmer, shine and a bit of ice.
  • Pearl Lipstick: glossy and glittery.
  • Long-wearing lipsticks: a lipstick that is long lasting.

The most popular lipsticks seem to be shiny, glossy, creamy and matte. You can get into the tricky business of dry lips with some of the long-wearing lipsticks, but if you are buying a good brand you shouldn’t have any problems.  

It’s a good idea to always carry your lipstick with you.  Lipstick should be refreshed every few hours, even if you have a long-wearing lipstick.  Take care of your lips and you’ll find the rest of you is taken care of automatically!
